Red Pepper Frittata

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 45 minutes

Number of servings: 4


    • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
    • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
    • 1/2 cup chopped celery
    • 1/2 cup onions, chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 cups egg substitute
    • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    • black pepper to taste
    • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


In a large ovenproof frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tsp oil. Add the red peppers, celery, onions, and garlic; cook, stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, lightly whisk together the egg substitute, parsley, oregano, and black pepper. Stir in the vegetable mixture. In the same frying pan over medium heat warm the remaining 1 tsp oil. Add the egg mixture and cook until brown around the edges. Cover the pan and reduce heat to low. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the eggs are set.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Sprinkle the frittata with the Parmesan. Place the pan about 5” from the heat and broil for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve cut into wedges.
